It’s easy to dump on Sebastian Vettel, despite his four Formula One World Championships, because his driving style can be a bit, well, dry. Like, Sahara Desert-levels of dry. That’s not because he can’t drive with some flair, however, if he doesn’t want to. Check him out going full opposite lock in Monaco.

And all it took was some dicey oversteer in his Ferrari and the prospect of slamming into the wall during the first practice for this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix.

But now I’m left wondering why we even bother to have rear wings at all in F1. Just imagine the possibilities of slippy-slidey driving like this, on every single corner. Sure, it’d be slower, and someone will probably get very badly injured very quickly, but it’ll be so, so worth it.

H/t to r/formula1!
